The first downtown concert of an event series presented by Music Off Main (MOM), a project of Main Street: Greeneville, will be held Friday, Aug. 9, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. rain or shine.
The free event will be held below Main Street on West Depot, which will be closed to traffic, a news release said.
Headlining the concert event will be The Trey Hensley Band. Greeneville musician Stephen Winslow will open the concert.
Hensley, a native of Jonesborough, plays his own brand of traditional honky-tonk music. He hit the road with his four-piece band several years ago and has toured from Philadelphia to Los Angeles, Nebraska to North Carolina.
He now returns to his native Tennessee for a few concert dates.
